HOW THE CHLORINE IS GENERATED
This product is specially designed for above ground pools. It will destroy the bacteria, oxidize bather organics and control algae, which provide a safe, clean and comfortable swimming pool.
Common salt (sodium chloride) is made up of two elements, sodium and chloride. During the installation of your Saltwater System, a measured quantity of salt is dissolved in the pool water to make it slightly salty. The pool water flows through the Saltwater System ’s electrolytic cell to produce chlorine. The chlorine dissolves in the water and instantly starts destroying bacteria and algae. It also oxidizes all other organic materials.
HOW COPPER IONS ARE GENERATED
Low voltage direct current is applied to the copper electrode, and copper ions are generated and dissolved instantly in the water. Copper is an effective algaecide, which will prevent algae from growing in the pool.

SALT & POOL WATER VOLUMES
• Which kind of salt to use:
Use only Sodium Chloride Salts
Use only sodium chloride (NaCl) salt that is at least 99.8% pure. It is also acceptable to use water conditioning salt pellets (the compressed forms of evaporated salt). However, it will take a longer time for them to dissolve.
Do not use iodized or yellow (yellow prussiate of soda) colored salt.
Salt is added to the pool water and the electrolytic cell uses the salt to create chlorine. The purer the salt the better the performance of the electrolytic cell.
• Optimum Salt Levels
The ideal salt level in the pool water is between 2500-3500 ppm (parts per million). The optimal level is 3000 ppm.
A too low salt level will reduce the efficiency of the Saltwater System and result in low chlorine production. A high salt level may generate a salty taste to the pool water (this may occur at a salt level above 3500-4000ppm). Too high a salt level may damage the power supply and cause corrosion to the pool metal fixtures and accessories. The Salt Table page of this manual, shows the correct dosage of salt needed. The salt in the pool is constantly recycled. The loss of salt is due only to pool water being physically removed from the pool. Salt is not lost due to evaporation.
• Adding Salt

  1. Switch the filter pump on to start the water circulation.
  2. Keep the Saltwater System turned off.
  3. Determine the amount of salt to be added (see “Salt Table”).
  4. Evenly spread the proper amount of salt around the inside perimeter of the pool.
  5. Avoid clogging the filter. Do not add salt through the skimmer.
  6. Brush the pool bottom to speed up the dissolving process. Do not allow salt to pile up on the bottom of the pool. Run the filter pump 24 consecutive hours to thoroughly dissolve the salt. 7. After 24 hours and if all the salt is dissolved, turn on the Saltwater System, press button until you hear a “beep”, code “00” flashing and set the saltwater pool system to desired operating time (see “Operating Time Table”).
    • Removing Salt
    If too much salt has been added, the unit will beep and display “Code 92” (see “Alarm Codes”). You will need to lower the salt concentration. The only way to do so, is to partially drain the pool and refill it with fresh water. Drain and refill approximately 20% of the pool’s water until the “Code 92” disappears.

    INTEX POOLS CYANURIC ACID TABLE
    Cyanuric acid is a chemical that reduces the loss of chlorine in water due to ultraviolet rays. To maintain the pool water clear and clean, and to maximize the performance of the device, add cyanuric acid to the pool. We recommend that the cyanuric acid level be maintained at approximately 1% of the salt, i.e. 100 Lbs (45 Kgs) salt x1% = 1 Lbs (0.45 Kgs) cyanuric acid. If the pool water is dirty, filthy or grimy, DO NOT add chlorine stabilizer (cyanuric acid) as this will slowdown the sanitation time of the device. Under this condition you must BOOST your pool water, refer to BOOST cycle steps. Once the pool water has been restored to clear and clean conditions you may add cyanuric acid.

    OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
  7. Turn on the filter pump.
  8. Start up the unit:
    Plug the power cord into the electrical outlet and test the GFCI/RCD (circuit breaker).
    Switch on the unit. Flashing code “00” appears on the electronic control station’s LED, indicating that the unit is ready to be programmed.
  9. Set operating hours for Saltwater system: With code “00” flashing, press button to set the desired operating hours. See the “Operating Time Table” for the required operating hours related to each pool size. Pressing will increase the time from 01 to 12 hours maximum. If you have selected too many hours keep pressing to repeat
    the cycle. The built-in timer will now activate (1 to 12 hours max per cycle) your Saltwater System, at the same time each day, for the number of hours you have set.
    NOTE: The Saltwater System will not operate if the filter pump is not operating. Make sure to program your filter pump (or start it manually) for operation beginning 5 minutes before the saltwater system and finishing 15 minutes after the saltwater system.
  10. Lock keypad controls:
    With the desired hour value showing, press button until you hear a “beep”. A green “WORKING” indicator on the control panel will light up within a few seconds to indicate that the saltwater system has started chlorine production. Locking the control buttons into this setting prevents unauthorized changing of the operating cycle.
    NOTE: If you forget to lock the keypad controls, the system will automatically lock it and start working 1 minute later.
  11. Readjust operating time if necessary:
    The operating hours can be re-adjusted if necessary. Press button until you hear a “beep” to unlock the keypad and the current programmed time will flash. Repeat steps 3 to 4.
    6 . Test the copper concentration in the pool water. The Saltwater System recommends a copper level of 0.1 to 0.2 ppm. This is easily tested by the copper ion test strips provided. If the test result is 0.1~0.2ppm, go directly to step 8.
    OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS (continued)
  12. Boost cycle
    • If the test result is below 0.1ppm, press and hold “BOOST” button for 5 seconds until the indicator lights up and the LED display “80”. This indicates that the saltwater system has started copper ion and more chlorine sanitizer production. You can press and hold the “BOOST” button for another 5 seconds until the indicator is off, which will cancel the Boost cycle.
    Note: Once the system has started copper ion and more chlorine sanitizer production, the boost button can’t be re-set until the power switch is off.

• The boost operating hours is 8 times the amount of time programmed into the system, i.e. if your saltwater system operating time is 2 hours, the boost procedure will run 8 x 2 = 16 hours. After boost procedure has been completed, the system will automatically switch to the normal working mode.
• Once the boost is operating, check whether the filter pump operating hours have been set properly. For example, the boost operating time is 8 hours, the filter pump should be set to run for 8 hours at least. Increase the filter pump operating time if necessary. Note: If an Intex filter pump is attached to the system, set the pump switch to on “I” position.

• After a heavy rain or if the pool is dirty, press the “BOOST” button to shock the pool again.

  1. Test pool water regularly:
    Once the copper level appears to be balanced, test the pool water every week to maintain the proper sanitizer level.
    It’s very important that the free chlorine is between 0.5-3.0 ppm and copper ion concentration is between 0.1~0.2 ppm. When the copper level is below 0.1 ppm, repeat step 7.
    NOTE: A High copper ion concentration may cause blonde hair to exhibit a green hair. To prevent this, wear a swimming cap during swimming, and wash hair with special shampoo after using the pool. See “Troubleshooting Guide”.
  2. Stand-by/power saving mode:
    • When the cycle ends, the green “SLEEP” indicator on the control panel lights up and the LED display flashes “93”. The system is now in Stand-By mode. After a while, it shuts down and sets itself in a Power Saving mode. The system will automatically turn itself back on in 24 hours, starting its daily cycle of chlorine production.
    • The “SLEEP” indicator stays on, while the system is in the Power Saving mode. The LED display however, goes blank after 5 minutes. Press any button ( or ) to view the last
    LED code.

    IMPORTANT
    When Code “90” alarm is shown, ensure the timer of the filter pump is set one (1) hour longer than the Saltwater System.
    If the filter pump does not have a built-in timer, the filter pump needs to be turned on/off manually every day.
    MAINTENANCE
    IMPORTANT
    Unplug the power cord before cleaning your system. Also close the plunger valves on your pool or insert the black hat-like plugs in the strainer opening to prevent water spillage. After completing all maintenance tasks, you must plug the power cord back in and open the plunger valves or remove the plugs.
    Flow Sensor Cleaning
  3. In a counter-clockwise motion unscrew the collar of the flow sensor (7) and remove it from the electrolytic cell conduit. See “Part Reference”.
  4. If deposits and debris are seen on the surface of the flow sensor, then use a garden hose to wash it off.

Connection Ridge

  1. If flushing with water does not remove the deposits, use a plastic brush to clean the surface and the hinge if necessary. Do not use a metal brush.
  2. After the flow sensor has been inspected and cleaned, align the locator notch on the flow sensor to the connection ridge in the conduit. Now turn the collar in a clockwise motion, tightening the sensor back into its position. Do not overtighten.
    Electrolytic Cell Cleaning
    The electrolytic cell (4) has a self cleaning function incorporated into the electronic control’s programming. In most cases this self cleaning action will keep the cell working at optimum efficiency. If the pool water is hard (high mineral content) the cell may require periodic manual cleaning. To maintain maximum performance, we recommend that you open and visually inspect the electrolytic cell (4) monthly.
    The following steps provide instructions on how to clean your cell.
    Inspection and cleaning:
  3. Switch off the unit, unplug the power cord from the electrical socket.
  4. For filter pumps with 1-1/4” (32mm) hose size – To prevent water from flowing out of the pool, unscrew the strainer grids from the strainer connectors and insert the hat-like plugs into the strainer connectors.
    For filter pumps with 1-1/2” (38mm) hose size – Turn both plunger valve handles fully clockwise until they stop. This closes the valve, prevents the water from flowing out of the pool.

MAINTENANCE (continued)

  1. Disconnect the 2 hoses from the Saltwater System, and assemble the cell cover (10) at each side of the cell.
  2. In a counter-clockwise motion, unscrew the collar of the copper electrode (5) and remove it from the electrolytic cell (4). Lift up the copper electrode.
  3. Pour kitchen grade vinegar into the cell to immerse the titanium plates. Then put the copper electrode back in the cell, soak them for about one hour until no colored areas remain.
  4. Open one side of the cell cover (10), drain and properly dispose of the vinegar. Connect the hose which goes from the pool to the cell. Flush the cell with the pool water.
  5. Reverse steps 3, 4, 5 and 6 to reconnect the electrolytic cell.

MAINTENANCE (continued)
INTEX® COPPER ION TEST STRIPS (PACKED WITH THE PRODUCT)
The Copper Ion Test Strips can be used to test the copper ion concentration in the water.
Directions and Use

  1. Dip the entire strip into the water for 3 seconds, then remove it
  2. Hold the strip level for 15 seconds. Do not shake excess water from the strip.
  3. Now compare the copper ion strip pad to the color chart on the packaging label.
    INTEX® 3-WAY TEST STRIPS (PACKED WITH THE PRODUCT)
    The 3-Way Test Strips can test the “Free Chlorine”, “pH”, and “Total Alkalinity” levels at the same time. We recommend that you test the water chemistry weekly, and maintain the chlorine concentration at 0.5-3.0 ppm.
    Directions and Use
  4. Dip the entire strip into the water and remove immediately.
  5. Hold the strip level for 15 seconds. Do not shake excess water from the strip.
  6. Now compare the strip pad to the color chart on the packaging label. If necessary, adjust the chemical level in the pool water. It is very important, to use the proper technique when testing the water’s chemical level. Read and follow the written strip instructions carefully.
    LONG TERM STORAGE
  7. Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet.
  8. After the pool is completely empty, disconnect the Saltwater System from the hoses by reversing the installation instructions.
  9. Air-dry the unit before you store it. This might be a good time to visually inspect and clean the electrolytic cell.
  10. Store the unit and accessories in a dry place. The temperature should be controlled, between 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius) and 97 degrees Fahrenheit (36 degrees Celsius).
  11. The original package can be used for storage.
